Royal Collection Trust launches Chelsea Garden range of gardening and home accessories

Release date: Tuesday 18 July 2023

Royal Collection Trust has launched its first range of gardening accessories with an accompanying homeware range, inspired by the garden at Buckingham Palace and the design of an 18th-century botanical tableware service in the Royal Collection.

The Chelsea Garden range consists of gardening gloves, a gardening tool belt, and a gardening tool gift set including a trowel, fork and transplanter. 

Items from the Chelsea Garden range©

For the home, a pair of cotton napkins, an apron, a tea cosy and a tea towel are also available. New Lemon Crisp Biscuits in a decorative tin complete the range. 

The design of this exclusive range, with its summery colours of pea green, yellow and lilac, is derived from a series of 18th-century botanical porcelain made by Chelsea Porcelain, the first English porcelain factory, which was collected by His Majesty The King's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Showing botanical illustrations of plants and insects, many of the original plates are displayed in the Morning Room at Clarence House and are typical of the hand-painted botanical decorations Chelsea Porcelain became known for.

The floral designs also take inspiration from the royal garden at Buckingham Palace. The landscape of the garden dates to the 1820s and is a rich habitat for over 1,000 trees and 320 different wildflowers and grasses – many of which are hard to find elsewhere in London. Such biodiversity supports a variety of insects, like the bees, beetles and butterflies also seen on the new items.

All profits from sales of the exclusive range go to Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity, for the care of the Royal Collection and the promotion of its exhibitions, publications, loans, and educational programmes. 

The range can be purchased online from or from Royal Collection Trust shops in London, Windsor, and Edinburgh. A contemporary range of Chelsea Porcelain and the official publication Buckingham Palace: A Royal Garden are also available to purchase from Royal Collection Trust shops. 

A selection of images is available from Dropbox.
